My 89 year old father wears his lace up Hoka's all day every day. He loves them. I found these as another option for him when he needs to slip on a comfortable shoe that is stable. He has had a few falls and uses a walker- so safety is paramount. The soles have excellent grip, no slipping or sliding around. He uses them as a house shoe too- as most are not made to provide the support, comfort and stability that these have. He can wear these all day, or around my pool and on the boat deck without slipping in wet areas. Great shoe, reasonably priced. Very pleased.
